I am looking for any information on these Surnames, Mainly for my grandparents, Pasquale Sangiuliano born May 21 1921, Maria Sarra Garito born March 3, 1920, Vincenzo Sgro Borng October 22, 1922, Anna Maria Sgro Born October 1921. Any information or passport pictures of them would be great, military records etc. Both Grandfathers fought in WWII all grandparents were born in Gagliato Province of Catanzaro.
They moved to Canada in the 1950s. They have all passed on now but I would like to see if I can dig up any old documents, photos anything about them at all. Military records for my grand fathers. If you could help me out it would be much appreciated.
I will poke around. In the meantime, you might find some useful information at the Library and Archives Canada - http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-908-e.html
My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me!
In Canada, it is likely that they ended up in South Porcupine, Ontario. I lived in South Porcupine from 1963-81. My best friend when I was little was Dino Sangiuliano, whose father was Dominic Sangiuliano. There were also a lot of Garitos there. Regarding the Sgros, there were two separate Sgro families, who were likely related several generations back. I don't know the one that you are looking for.
